Overall my wife and I had a really nice stay. The rooms are somewhat dated but decent enough. The breakfast is not worth waking up for but with all that being said the rooms were fairly clean, the employees were extremely courteous, friendly and helpful. The property is located literally a 2 minute walk from all the beaches that you... More

Me and my family stayed at this hotel one night on January 10, 2015. I am so grateful that it was only one night. We booked 2 rooms numbered 21 and 25. As we were walking towards the front desk area to check in, a young woman rushed past us almost knocking into us to get around and ahead of... More

We absolutely loved the location and this area of St. Maarten! Location is perfect, and the grounds are beautiful. The access to the beach, restaurants, etc. -perfect. The staff, Ann (manager) and Melissa (breakfast staff) were wonderful! However I competely agree with the other reviews. This hotel needs some rennovations!! I love small hotels/motels, as I perfer charm and character... More

First off, the hotel is in the most perfect location. A driveway and a few steps away there are tons of restaurants, a perfect grocery store with everything you can dream of (it's French, so amazing), and a huge beach with multiple beach bars. I have to be honest, we hung out at the orient bay beach for the first... More

My husband and I stayed hear the week of Christmas. The location is wonderful. It is a 5 minute walk to the beach, grocery store, and restaurants. The property of the hotel is quite good. Nice foliage and pool. The cleaning staff does a wonderful job with the rooms and the floors were always spotless. That said, I found the... More

We have stayed at a number of places on the French side of St Martin and love the Orient Beach area. This time Ted Demeritte of the St Martin Reservation Center recommended the Palm Court. We were thrilled with his suggestion. It is conveniently located about a half a block from the village restaurant area and a block from the... More

We spent a very pleasant week at the Palm Court. Pleasant personnel, good location, nice breakfast at poolside. No real complaints, we would love to return there. There are no real cooking facilities (the cooktop is disconnected so the description is a little misleading but the frig and microwave are a nice touch).

We stayed at Palm Court from Dec. 7-12. The hotel is an excellent condition with beautifully kept and gated grounds. The hotel manager Anne Jacques offered us a very warm welcome and greeted us by name when we arrived. Her staff are well trained and very accommodating. This is probably the finest choice of hotels on Orient Bay. You will... More

After staying for a week at Flamingo Beach resort on the Dutch side, we added a bit of "dessert" by moving for a few days to Orient Beach on the French side. The contrast is quite marked, each having a different set of attributes. We had last visited St. Martin over 20 years ago and stayed at Grand Case Beach... More

Awesome location and friendly staff. Except the breakfast lady who acted like it was a giant pain in the butt to serve breakfast at 10:00 even though they are supposed to close at 10:30. Anna at the front desk is a delight and extremely helpful. We arrived at the hotel as Hurricane Gonzalo began taking it's toll and Anna went... More
